DA leader John Steenhuisen wants public protector Kholeka Gcaleka to investigate President Cyril Ramaphosa, claiming the ruling party wants to use taxpayers’ money to win votes.

In a statement on Sunday, Steenhuisen said his party would provide new evidence to support its claims that the ANC misused state funds for its own gain.
